A Norwegian athletics coach has been suspended after receiving emails on doping procedures from the former coach of Jamaican star Merlene Ottey.

The Norwegian Athletics Association on Monday suspended one of its coaches, Petar Vukicevik, on suspicion of having supplied athletes with performance-enhancing drugs.

The decision came after the Norwegian press published emails about doping allegedly sent to a Slovenian colleague by the coach, who is of Serbian origin.

The association said in a statement that it has decided to suspend Vukicevik, with his agreement, pending the conclusions of an investigation by Norwegian authorities.

Vukicevik acknowledges having sent the emails, translated and published by tabloid Dagbladet on Saturday, to Srdjan Djordjevic to inform him about the general effects of growth hormones and testosterone but claims they have been doctored by his ex-wife.

Djordjevic is the former coach of Jamaican-born sprinter Merlene Ottey.

In the emails, Vukicevik appears to admit that some of the athletes he is training are using performance-enhancing drugs and asks for ways to circumvent doping controls.

Petar Vukicevic is the father and trainer of hurdler Christina Vukicevic, who won a 100m hurdles gold medal at the 2009 European Athletics U23 Championships.
